Gaurav Khanna, who is seen as Anuj in Anupamaa, produced by Deepa Shahi and Rajan Shahi, under their banner Shahi Productions Pvt Ltd., feels that in today’s competitive world, opportunities are very rare, and people should grab whatever they can their hands on.   

He said, “I personally believe that everybody who gets an opportunity, and if they understand that this opportunity is important for growth in their career and achievements, I think anybody in their right mind would grab it with both arms, not just hands. Because it's such a rare thing to get an opportunity in today's competitive world.”   “That's where I feel luck plays a big role. I always say that luck gets you to the place, but to sustain that place is your talent, hard work, and dedication. I always feel that it's a combination of luck, hard work, and talent. So, luck is the initiator, and then hard work is the next step to it,” he added.   

But how do you decide when there are multiple opportunities? “I feel there are chances, and there are times when in life one gets more than one opportunity across the table. Again, I say that I just go with the gut feeling. I just thank the Almighty, thank God that he has put me in such a position where I can select certain opportunities. I am only grateful and thankful, and humbled by the whole blessing of my parents, my fans, and my loved ones, because it’s very tough for people to get even one opportunity in life.”

“And about choosing multiple opportunities, it’s very rare. I would say it’s good trouble to have (laughs). But yes, choosing one is always a tough question because you don’t know which one to let go of and which one to choose. That’s why I just go back, think, and follow my gut,” he added.   He further says that he follows his instincts, takes God’s name, and just plans. “I just dive with a leap of faith, and then I give my hundred percent. Sometimes things go your way, the opportunities you grab, and sometimes they don’t go your way. That is something I don’t regret,” he said.   “At least I tried, at least I set the wheel rolling, at least I took a decision, and I always back that. The rest, I leave to God and the universe, how it unfolds, how it flowers out in the world. That’s not in my hands. What is in my hands is to take a decision and move forward, and that’s what I like to do,” he ended.
